Title: SKATE ROCK TOUR - coming 5/2008
Post by: Schmitty on February 07, 2008, 12:33:33 PM
The dates have tentatively been set. The tour will begin in San Diego and head to Seattle starting May 2nd and ending around May 11th. We're headin' up the 5 and going through Fresno, Sacramento, Medford, Portland, and ending in Seattle. Already, we know that Bad Shit and Shed will be along for the whole ride followed by a van of the Spitfire team.  Hit us up, if you're on the route and you got cool shit to skate or a good scene where we might want to stop and rock. Fuck, if you want mark the dates down and join our caravan, it's gonna be a party on the road for sure. More details coming soon...

Yeah, I think we might even stop in Grants Pass, it's all up in the air as of now, but as shit gets dialed in Ill let you know. But get Medford ready for us, we'll be coming through in early May!

Post by: El Benito on February 09, 2008, 03:16:01 PM
i've been telling my homies about it. Grants pass isnt that great, the park is kinda shitty and everyone in that town is a douche bag. Medford will be off the hook though.

I like grants pass, it's all hippies and meth labs.


Title: Re: SKATE ROCK TOUR - coming 5/2008
Post by: El Benito on February 10, 2008, 12:49:48 AM
yeah but besides all the chill hippies, its full of asshole punk kids who think they're all hella badass. And recently there is becoming a big ass emo scene in grants pass. If you want to go to a badass town in southern oregon go to rogue river.


Title: Re: SKATE ROCK TOUR - coming 5/2008
Post by: malinas on February 10, 2008, 01:08:53 AM
yeah I went to grans pass and medford and some others a couple years ago and we got to skate the park only for a little bit and then the rain came so we went fishing in a river and checked out the local scene and it seemed quite relaxing.


Title: Re: SKATE ROCK TOUR - coming 5/2008
Post by: El Benito on February 10, 2008, 02:06:56 PM
ive been to a lot of places and southern oregon is definitely the best. i'd be happy living here forever.

One of the funnest times I've ever had being a skateboarder was going to the Carbondale Run.

Mud slides.

carbondale's sick. the upsidedown machine... i mean, cradle is epic. you can get so much speed on the way to that thing, its scary.

so are they just gonna play at the skateparks or what?


Title: Re: SKATE ROCK TOUR - coming 5/2008
Post by: Schmitty on March 24, 2008, 04:12:48 PM
Yup, mostly playing at skateparks. The one in Seattle is at Marginal Way, the one in Sac is at that shed park where Cardiel just had the ad in the wooden bowl, the one in Fresno I believe is going to be at Madera park, Battle Ground has been talked about for Portland and So-Cal is still up in the air.


Title: Re: SKATE ROCK TOUR - coming 5/2008
Post by: Messenger on March 25, 2008, 01:39:02 PM
I'm going to the Sacramento one for sure. Are you going to be in the Reno area at all?


Title: Re: SKATE ROCK TOUR - coming 5/2008
Post by: bailgun on March 25, 2008, 03:11:32 PM
pdx should just be in the parking lot at burnside.

seems like a no-brainer.

battleground isn't even in portland, it's in vancouver, wa.


Title: Re: SKATE ROCK TOUR - coming 5/2008
Post by: Schmitty on March 25, 2008, 03:47:28 PM
Burnside has been having heavy cop patrol of late... We're not for sure going to Battle Ground, that's basically the last date that we have to work out.
Looks like we will be going to Reno, details tomorrow hopefully.

talk to chuck about permits.
he throws the nontest every year.
i pm'd you his  contact info.

Post by: Schmitty on March 26, 2008, 09:20:05 AM
I'll see what's up but this is really for our promotion/marketing director and kind of out of my hands, but thanks for the info... Ill pass it a long.


Title: Re: SKATE ROCK TOUR - coming 5/2008
Post by: bailgun on March 26, 2008, 06:27:22 PM
cool.  i figured someone else was in charge of the logistical part, but knew you'd pass the info along to the right people.
so are you gonna be coming along on the trip?

Fuck yeah! Pstone and I are in the van from Vegas to Seattle and then maybe a little bonus trip to Orcas(we'll see on that), but yeah, the idea is that Ill be gettin' updates on the site city to city if possible, should be a fun one


Title: Re: SKATE ROCK TOUR - coming 5/2008
Post by: bailgun on March 28, 2008, 05:44:53 PM
if the orcas trip doesn't work out, you should hit bainbridge. it's super cheap and easy to get to from seattle. just a 45 minute ferry ride from downtown. come to think of it, you should PLAY A SHOW AT BAINBRIDGE TOO. people have bbq's and shit there all the time with no hassles. sick park, cool setting.... it'd be epic.

orcas is heaven, but you kinda gotta add 2 days of tavel time to the trip.

siiick, when bad shit plays get phelps a ladder and make him play up on top of the smoke stack at medford, then he will be the god of the skatepark!

There's a fire station next to C-Dale, not a cop shop.  They love thrasher though.  That was an epic weekend to be sure.
